Works in Progress: An Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference, May 31, 2012

updated: 
Saturday, January 21, 2012 - 8:00pm
Department of English & Comparative Literature, University of Cincinnati

The English Department at the University of Cincinnati invites you to submit proposals for an interdisciplinary academic conference held on May 31, 2012 focusing on the value of sharing works in progress as a means to increase experimentation, build community, and test new ideas. Rather than soliciting finished products from participants, we seek work that shows its seams, represents thinking in action, invites revision, and resists closure. In other words, don't hide your process; advertise it.

VIOLENCE
In Theory and Practice
March 23-25, 2012

The Seventh Annual University of Ottawa English Graduate Conference - Ottawa, ON, Canada
Keynote Speaker: Smaro Kamboureli, University of Guelph

"Violence commands both literature and life, and violence is often crude and distorted." – Ellen Glasgow

Violence is an ever-present phenomenon in literary texts. From Homer's graphic descriptions of infantry combat in the Iliad, to Wilfred Owen's haunting portrayal of the war-torn fields of Europe, to Edith Wharton's subtle critique of Old New York as a place of ruthless social warfare, representations of violence powerfully call our attention to questions of authority, agency and power.
